I have Google Chrome installed from the Google Chrome repository. When I run
sudo apt-get update, I notice that getting headers relating to Google Chrome takes more time than is needed to get all the other headers.
I thought it was normal but today I came across an (old) bug page that initially suggested use of
sudo apt-get -o Acquire::http::Pipeline-Depth=0 update instead of the basic
sudo apt-get update and later stated that the problem was fixed (by April 2010). However, I feel I'm currently having the same problem: the process rapidly completes ~97% in under 5 sec but the remaining ~3%, involving the Google Chrome headers, takes a couple of minutes or so more. Using
sudo apt-get -o Acquire::http::Pipeline-Depth=0 update doesn't significantly improve things.
I'm using Ubuntu 11.10, fully updated.

Just an observation: I updated to
18.0.1025.168 (Official Build 134367) and left the ppa ticked but it doesn't seem to be a problem now. I see:
